Rattlesnake Lake



These engagement portraits at Rattlesnake Lake revealed to me the perfect time of year to shoot at this epic location in North Bend!

I had photographed several portrait sessions at Rattlesnake Lake Before. It’s one of my favorite spots to recommend for couples who want a mountain look without having to do the mountain drive/hike!

Fall is the perfect time for this location as it has a tendency to be very crowded in the summer and super cold in the winter! I still love shooting there in the winter, though. Worth it!

In the Fall, the water is at its lowest revealing tons of cool logs and way more land to work with. It’s not too cold yet, and beautiful colors start popping in the back ground.

The weather was perfect and the crowds were non-existent!

Rattlesnake Lake will definitely be at the top of my location recommendation list in the Fall.

Jasmin and Stephen will be having a wedding out of State in June 2020! I was so happy they brought their cute pup, Java. Doing a couples session with a puppy definitely adds some difficulties behind the scenes. However, its so worth documenting a new family in whole for part of a session!

It was clear how much Java means to Jasmin and Stephen. I love that we got some great photos of all three of them and Java alone as a part of this season of their lives together!

Congratulations to these two as they start new lives in Washington and plan an out-of-state wedding with their family!

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
